‘Not Your Festival Wear: Fashion and Cultural Appropriation’ Panel Discussion

Tuesday, Oct. 24 | 3-4 p.m. | Intercultural Center

This student-led panel discussion will examine recent fashion and pop culture trends that “borrow” inspiration from other cultures in an increasingly globalized world, especially when it comes to women’s fashion. Student panelists will address tough questions like: what does it really mean to appropriate something from another culture? How is appropriation fueled by women’s fashions and “white feminism”? And how we can more respectfully engage other cultures? Discussion will be followed by Q&A. Facilitated by Dana Bisignani, Women’s Center Coordinator. 

Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Women’s Center, and American Indian Student Association.
